So much for 24/7 access - the darn thing goes to sleep in the middle of an HD stream.

M. Merritt "Honest-even if it hurts", Amazon

  • Summary: The drive can not deliver streaming to more than two HD devices not matter how I connect it - no matter what system it is installed in. It has only average at best, transfer speeds and at times it puts itself to sleep in the middle of accessing a movie file over time.

Inexpensive, but prone to early death

Kenneth C. Reed, Amazon

  • Summary: These don't last anywhere close to the MTBF ratings, but they are warrantied for a fairly long time or they are now getting cheap enough to replace if they happen to make it past the warranty period, which about half the time in my experience.

ad is misleading

dBeau, Amazon
28 May 2015
  • Summary: Purchased from GoHardDrive the ad stated "Manufacturer Warranty Description: 5 years" but when the serial number was given to the Seagate website the drives were listed as "OEM" with no warranty. I ordered five drives. All were at least three years old (from 2011 or 2012).
